Hi, I’m ZillaQ

I am the mom to two wonderful boys, one of whom experiences many different disabilities. He is the inspiration behind this blog.

He was born prematurely, was medically fragile and had global developmental delays. We struggled to find the information and services that we so desperately needed but didn’t even know existed or where to find it.

The experience of not having one place to go to find information or to even know what services we should be looking into has led me to create this website. I want to share what I have learned through the years with other families to hopefully make their disability journey a little smoother.

I love to connect with other individuals and families that experience disabilities. The sharing of experiences and knowledge that we have each gleaned from our journeys, is a powerful thing.

Nowadays, I call myself a…
